MIC Faenza won the “Per Chi Crea” – 2023 Edition call for proposals promoted by the SIAE for the production of new works with the project “Stairing” by artist Gugliemo Maggini, which will be set up at the entrance of the museum and will be inaugurated in 2024 on the occasion of the next edition of Argillà-Italia.

Guglielmo Maggini was born in Rome in 1992. His artistic work takes place on the border between sculpture and installation. Maggini’s sculptures ironically blend and mold themselves on different materials in an organic proliferation of elements and gestures.

After graduating in architecture in Rome, he obtained a master’s degree in Visual Arts from the University of Arts of LondonCamberwell college of Arts and then completed his art training in New York as an assistant to Gaetano Pesce. A professional collaboration that deeply inspired Maggini, bringing new materials and experimentation into his practice.

For the artist, in an Imaginary place where space is understood as a plastic volume, the relationship between the viewer, installation space and work are the cornerstone of the work. They represent a continuous exchange of influences and relationships: on the one hand, the physical space inevitably acts on the visitor’s sensory perception on the other hand, the work makes profound changes to our objective perception of our surroundings in a continuous re-enactment between classical heritage, the natural world, and pop culture references.

A finalist in the 62nd Faenza Prize; recent initiatives in which he took part include : IMAGINA ( 17th Gubbio Biennial, 2023); Intermezzo – adagio ma con brio ( Official Meeting Point, 66th Festival of the Two Worlds, Spoleto, 2023); Come il vento nelle Case ( Z2o – Sara Zanin, Rome, 2023); Circular Art (MAXXI, Rome, 2022); The Big Burnout (HYPERMAREMMA 2022, Porta Medina, Orbetello, 2022); MATERIA NOVA (Gallery of Modern Art, Rome, 2022).
